Q. Can I register domain names with Amazon Route 53? No. Amazon Route 53 does not provide registrar support or integration at this time. For Route 53 to be able to answer DNS queries for your domains, you must inform the registrar you registered your domain name with to update your name server settings, by listing the Route 53 name servers for your hosted zone.

Q. Can I register domain names with Amazon Route 53?

Yes. You can use the AWS Management Console or API to register new domain names with Route 53. You can also request to transfer in existing domain names from other registrars to be managed by Route 53. Domain name registration services are provided under our Domain Name Registration Agreement.
